<Ctrl><Alt><Backspace> sends a terminate signal to the X server software. This will end all applications running inside the graphical desktop. The X server will be automatically restarted and take you back to the graphical logon screen.
<Ctrl><Alt><Backspace> is not specific to Mint 14, but available on (almost?) all Linux environments which run an X server.
<Ctrl><Alt><Backspace> is useful in cases where the graphical desktop has got unresponsive otherwise.
So if i give that command
- Code: Select all
setxkbmap -option terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp
it should have the same effect ?! My trouble is not actually the command .... I wnt to create a script file to run on startup .. For that purpose I need the actual command which when entered into the terminal window will produce the same effect as that of Ctrl-Alt-Bckspace
